Elizabeth Marie and family,
Sending my most sincere condolences during your time of loss. May you and your entire family find comfort in God's word, the Bible, at Revelations 21:4, " And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away."
With deepest sympathy,
A Moore

Mother McCoy was one of my weekly Wednesday Religious teachers at Bethesda Apostolic Church when it was located on Hartford Avenue. Each Wednesday we were dismissed from school early to attend the church of our choice that was participating in what the NB Public School System called :Religious Day. Mother McCoy was instrumental in me loving the Word of God. Family enjoy the wonderful memories of a fine Woman of God. - from Pastor Regina Tanksley-Harris, Augusta, GA.
